Ignite, Accelerate and Amplify Design-Driven Social Change
Design for Good is a platform that develops and sustains design thinking for social change. It also provides opportunities for creatives to build their practice, their network, and their visibility. Design for Good recognizes designers’ skills and leadership in implementing social change in our communities, our country, and the world at large.
AIGA West Michigan’s Weekend Blitz event enters its third year with the continued goal of extending the movement to ignite, accelerate and amplify design-driven social change through the collaboration of creative professionals and local non-profit organizations.
Unique to the Weekend Blitz, participants span the range of creative disciplines with Print Designers, User Interface Designers, User Experience Designers, Copywriters, Illustrators, Business Strategists, Photographers, Videographers, Industrial Designers and Developers. With this approach, we’re able to catapult non-profit organizations to the next phase, helping them gain more funding, increase volunteer efforts, raise awareness of their service/initiative, and so much more.
With our communities’ support and involvement, Design for Good helps area non-profits and social enterprise groups understand and utilize the power of design. Leading by example, our community will see firsthand the impact of excellent design.
